Scuderi appointed Eurovent secretary general

BELGIUM: Francesco Scuderi has been appointed secretary general of Eurovent to replace long-serving Felix Van Eyken who is retiring in July.

The appointment is effective immediately with Van Eyken assuming an advisory role and support for the Eurovent secretariat on a part-time basis until the end of July.

Scuderi (pictured above) joined Eurovent in September 2015 as technical and regulatory affairs manager and team leader process cooling and food cold chain. He was appointed deputy secretary general in 2017. Before joining the association, Scuderi gained in-depth experience in the HVACR industry for the EPTA Group as intellectual property and regulatory affairs engineer.

Stijn Renneboog will support Scuderi as newly appointed deputy secretary general. He has been at Eurovent since 2019 and has been instrumental in structural reform of the association as well as strategic relations development.
